homes threatened. >> firefighters say it started at 1:30 afternoon on the second floor of an apartment building at the corner of mcallister and scott streets in san francisco. that's where christian heartnet is now. christian. >> in the four buildings involved are made of wood and fire crews say that helped the fire spread very quickly, leaving a lot of damage behind. now the fire started on the second floor of one of the buildings. large flames were shooting up in the air as the firefighters tried to knock down the fire. one firefighter was taken to the hospital for exhaustion. but overall, no one was hurt. as the flames spread to nearby buildings, it forced 25 neighbors to evacuate. many of those neighbors were taken in by the red cross, but we're being told they have now found a temporary place to stay, but they are wondering when they will be able to go back to their own homes. >> well, i'm concerned, because i mean, it definitely upsets your day when you have to get out of your place for
any reason. i'm hoping everybody will be able to get back in. if it's not too much water damage. >> the fire department is still trying to figure out how this fire started, although fire crews don't think any of the buildings will need to be completely rebuilt. the damage is substantial and will likely cost a lot of money to repair. so this makes three large scale fires in the city in the past week. dozens of residents without a place to stay. we'll talk about the difficulty for them to look for answers. that's coming up at 6:30. live in san francisco, kpix5. >> as christian mentioned, that apartment fire is the third in san francisco in just four days. you may remember this fire from wednesday night in the mission neighborhood. tonight, 54 people from that building are looking for a new place to live. and on thursday night, 18 people lost their homes in an apartment fire on hyde street in the tenderloin. >> tonight, an arrest in the case that found a body cut up and stuffed in a suitcase.

the tip came in. >> definitely breaks the flag. >> police are confident they have their guy. but why someone would scatter body parts like their toys, police won't say. >> we believe it was murder as our suspect was booked on murder. as far as the motive and circumstances surrounding the murder, i won't have that. >> at this time, the state dna lab helping to identify the victim's remains believed to be that of a light skinned man. in soma, mark kelly, kpix5. >> another question still to be answered, exactly how the man was killed. >> super bowl xlix kicks off tomorrow in glendale, arizona, and there's a warning from the faa come game time. the only thing flying through the air should be footballs. the faa established add virtual no fly zone around the university of phoenix stadium. the real concern is about drones. the nfl says it is finding more and more drones at stadiums and they could cause problems.
>> somebody could just plain flat fly that drone into the crowd. and injure a few people. perhaps something on the drone, you know, that could cause, even if it's an explosion. but enough to cause a small panic or panic on the ground. >> the nfl says if a drone flies anywhere within a 30-mile radius tomorrow, an exclusive team will be ready to take it down. >> well, it is official. super bowl l has been handed off to the bay area. >> the countdown is officially on. will the host team be in it? joe vasquez is in phoenix and he posed that question to the 49ers owner. hi joe. >> reporter: i did, and how are you? look at this. the red carpet. this is one of the most star studded affairs here of the entire super bowl week. the nfl honors dinner going on right now behind me. and the honor bestowed on the
bay area. come see us next year for super bowl l and we'll be there waiting for you with open arms. >> on a stage before super bowl xlix in phoenix, the stage is now set for number l in the bay area. the torch is being passed. actually, it's more like a football handoff. >> so i'm going to ask david russo to literally pass the ball to daniel lury. that seemed to go fairly well. >> that's it, you now have the ball. what are you going to tell the people of the bay area? >> come monday morning, we're on the clock. we're excited. we're thrilled, we're honored, and we're going to use this opportunity to shine a light on all of its great in the san francisco bay area. >> coming home. >> oh yeah, it's very exciting. we are actually just talking about it earlier today, what it's going to be like in the bay area. >> it's going to be like this, but even bigger. >> crazier, too. >> i'm hoping san francisco

millions of details. just the fact that a million people plus come into a city over a seven-day period is enough to boggle the mind. they tell us the priorities will be security and transportation and you heard them talking about drones. they are worried about much more than drones here. there have been terrorist attacks around the world in recent times and they are very focused on that. >> joe vasquez, thanks so much. see you at 6:30. >> not only will there be security for the fans, but also the footballs themselves. and you know why, it's all because of deflategate. the nfl is guarding 108 footballs right now. 108. to make sure that they aren't tampered with. they will be delivered to the game officials three hours before kickoff. the referee and his crew will keep watch on them and they will check the inflation at random and keep an eye out for irregularities. >> there's always a gray area in officiating. the bottom line is how i judge
it is, is someone gaining an advantage? >> each team gave the nfl54 balls. they will be rotating and some will be auctioned off afterward. nearly three years to the day after whitney houston's death in a hotel bathtub, her daughter, bobby christina nearly suffers the same fate. what we know about what happened. the islamic terror group, isis, follows through on another threat after negotiations for a
